Not my best review. Not rated to stated style as the rating would be very low.

So I can't tell if this is supposed to be a sour stout, but it is.

Appearance:
The huge, continuous head seems to me to be the first sign that this is either intentionally or accidentally sour. Other than the fact that I can't seem to pour more than two ounces at a time, the beer has a nice dark color with lots of tan head.

Smell:
The cherry scent again tells me I'm dealing with something going sour. I smell cherry/sour more than anything.

Taste:
Like Avery's Depuceleuce or something. Not getting stout and not getting 60 IBUs.

Mouthfeel:
Nice and medium in the mouth. Light for a stout, but not like drinking water or anything.

Drinkability:
If you like sours, this is on the lighter side. For me, I've been working on this bomber for over an hour, hoping I don't have a headache in the morning.

22oz Bottle from Total Wine Palm Desert for $6

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a large size frothy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some wood and boozy flavours.

Overall - Really rich and sweet and lots of high quality chocolate flavours. I'd like a little more wood aged flavour, but this still as enough to keep it interesting. A steal at 6$ (on clear out) wish I could travel home with a few more bottles.

22oz (2013) into a tulip. Pours an opaque black w/ a 1-finger tan head that settles to some wispy foam.

Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and dark fruit.

Taste follows nose. Dark chocolate, bitter roast, oaky char, bourbon, caramel, vanilla. This one is rich and decadent. Earthy and nutty. Has a really nice bitter smoky finish.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with good carbonation.

Overall a surprisingly big, flavorful beer from Pike. Really excellent. I've had a lot of barrel-aged imperial stouts, and this one is right up there with some of the best of them.

Bottle I brought to share at Skuter's tasting.

2013 vintage.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is definitely suffering from a mild infection issue but is still fairly drinkable.

and this is why Bourbon county rates so high...
not sure what funky odor i'm getting off this one but it isn't great. getting a twangy coffee, chocolate-y aroma that just isn't right.
definitely has some "wood aged" flavor to it, albeit a bit earthy, but it pales in comparison to the recent Bourbon County. as I hold the glass to my mouth for a second drink, I get that nasty, funky smell again,,,, 9.5% it's either dump or chug, I think, at this point.
nice chocolate milk head on 2nd pour, but it cant save it. this is not a great brew. nothing I have had from this brewer is really any good, that I can remember.
the nasty little smell kills this one, as far as i'm concerned. maybe I have a bad one, but the smell is terrible. the taste is general and typical as stouts go, and still very unremarkable.
